Look, fullHOUSE sports isn’t a political or religious blog. If so I’m pretty sure me and Westside would already have jobs as contributors for FoxNews. This is a sports/entertainment/hard body blog. But the thing about Lent is EVERYBODY can relate to it. What are you giving up? Did you hear what this person is giving up? Have you tried the new fish sandwich at Wendy’s? Even the jews and atheists like to talk about how their one friend who gave up TV for Lent and how stupid that was. I mean there are times in the year when I wish Lent would come around the next day, just so I had an excuse for not going day drinking all Saturday and having a two day hangover into Monday. “Sorry guys I can’t play beer darts, remember I gave up drinking.” Boom roasted. So it got me thinking about what I would give up for Lent this year. It didn’t really hit me till yesterday. Sure, we’re already a week into Lent. And I didn’t go to church on Ash Wednesday. And actually the last time I went to church was Christmas, and the time before that
Easter last Christmas. But I think I finally found an original and challenging Lenten promise: I’m gonna give up using my credit and debit cards and only use cash.
Yes you heard me, straight cash homie, for forty days and forty nights. Look I don’t know how this is going to turn out. I use cash so rarely that I’m not entirely sure who’s on the 10 or 20 dollar bill (Hamilton has gotta be on one of those). Plastic is so easy and simple. It doesn’t give you spare change that you feel obligated to tip when you get Chipotle, or when a homeless guy comes up to you (gross). Who knows maybe I can spend less, save more, and not wake up to a huge tab from the bar the next morning. Either that or all my friends will hate me for constantly being that guy who doesn’t have money for cabs, beer, dinner, etc. Everyone hates that guy.
If you hate people that talk about Lent, you wanna tell me what you’re giving up, you thought this blog was about lent in your clothes, or how this is going to be impossible leave a comment.
